Alaska 20 swept by South Open

Alaska 20 finished up its regular season with 6-4 and 13-1 losses to South’s Open team Friday at the Soldotna Little League fields.

Both the losses were nonleague, so Alaska 20 finishes the regular season 5-5 in the Alliance Baseball League and 6-20 overall.

In the 6-4 loss, South took a 3-0 lead after two innings, but the Twins cut it to 3-1 after the third. After the fourth, South went up 5-2. South then led 6-2 after the top of the sixth before an Alaska 20 comeback bid came up short.

Davey Belger went all seven innings for Alaska 20, giving up six runs on 11 hits while walking none and striking out two.

At the plate, Sam Berry went 2 for 3 with a run and Tanner Ussing was 2 for 4 with a run and an RBI. Also, Harrison Metz was 1 for 3 with two runs and an RBI, Atticus Gibson was 1 for 4 with an RBI and Davey Gibson was 1 for 2.

In the 13-1 game, South put the mercy rule into effect after five innings.

Metz was able to keep South off the board for two innings and Jonathan Gregoire recorded an out without giving up a run. South was able to get to Daltyn Deborski, Berry and Dodge Petrosius.

Alaska 20 collected four hits in the game, with Ussing going 2 for 2. Berry and Karl Wickstrom had the other hits, while Deborski scored the run.

Alaska 20 now waits until Alliance Baseball League play finishes Sunday to see what the postseason holds.

Three members of Alaska 20 do know they will be playing in a game between the American Division All-Stars and Former Legion Legends at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage.

Berry has been named to the team as a pitcher, while Mose Hayes made it as an infielder and Tanner Ussing made it as an infielder.
